POP3 Virtual Server Refuses to Start

Make sure that the POP3 port (usually 110) is free and that no other apps
are using it. To test for this just establish a telnet session on that port.

P.S. The error you are getting translates to:

"Only one usage of each socket address (protocol/network address/port) is
normally permitted."

1. POP3 Virtual Server Refuses to Start

Take a great care to provide a server for Exchange only whenever it is
possible.  This is really not a pretty good idea to keep running a bunch of
heavy applications on the same server than exchange.  That told, special
dedicated tools are included with softwares such as Norton AV Enterprise
